Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)

If there is one thing I learned in Chile, it is that not only am I a wine person, I’m a CHILEAN wine person! —Nick Henderson After what felt like a non-stop, fast paced, blitz through Peru (because it was one) Abbi and I hopped onto a Latam flight and continued further South in SouthContinue reading “Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)”

Riding the Hiawatha Trail

One of the best things about living in the Pacific Northwest is the outdoor activities, all year long. We have boating, hiking, biking, camping, swimming, climbing, skiing, everything. If there’s a sport and a season, we have it. The Hiawatha Trail is one of those exciting activities you just have to do if you’re upContinue reading “Riding the Hiawatha Trail”

Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?

So here we are again, a year between posts and I’m writing that I’ll do better, I’ll post regularly, I’ll stay more involved in the blog process. We’ve been here before. This past year has certainly been an interesting one, and there are a few reasons why “the roaming pilot” hasn’t been roaming much atContinue reading “Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?”

Freak Blizzard and the Car Crash (Pics)

I’d just returned home from a long month in Louisiana where I’d finished my interview, training and some “work over” for the helicopter company that I’m working for now.

Finances: You can never be “TOO” hands on

Whoa! We’re actually generating content here that is not directly connected to travel or flying. What have I become?!? Seriously though, let’s talk about something dirty for a minute – one of those off limits topics. Money. Finances. Greenbacks. Benjamins.

Mozart’s Don Giovani – in Kuwait

Well here’s one I didn’t think I’d be writing. Kuwait has been a great place to live and discover, and I’ve been out here nearly a year now. Honestly I thought I was fairly well versed on the offerings of the city. Imagine my surprise when I was browsing through a couple local blogs andContinue reading “Mozart’s Don Giovani – in Kuwait”

Flying with Class…Business Class

Back in the start of March I had to fly back to the United States.
